wind chill calculator

Windchill stinks.  (Of course, given that yesterday the high was in the 60’s here in Columbus, it is a little weird to talk about this.  But still…)  Check the weather outside before you scoot out.  And watch out for deer!!

If it’s 40 (Farenheit) outside and you travel at 40 (mph) then it feels like 27 (F).  Check for yourself, scroll to the bottom of this page.  http://www.weatherimages.org/data/windchill.html  Note that speeds above 40 (mph) don’t really make it worse.  My rule of thumb is to dress so that standing outside you are hot.  All over.  Not like “in an oven” hot, more like “eh, how soon can I take off my jacket?” hot.
